Creating characters with mind-control powers is a common trope in the anime genre. While some use it for good, others use it for evil. This article focuses on the most dangerous characters in anime with mind-control powers. These characters have the ability to make others obey their every command, creating chaos and destruction wherever they go.
Shisui Uchiha – Naruto
Shisui Uchiha is a character in Naruto who possesses the Sharingan. He developed an even more powerful ability called Kotoamatsukami. With this power, Shisui can control the minds of others without them realizing it. He can make anyone do what he wants, and they are convinced that they are acting on their own free will. However, this power can be used only once every ten years, and Shisui must make direct eye contact with his intended target.
Eren Jaeger – Attack on Titan
Eren Jaeger is a fascinating and frightening character in Attack on Titan with the power to control the minds of Titans. When he inherits the Founding Titan ability, he gains the power to command Pure Titans and the powerful Colossal Titan. Using this mind-control power, Eren unleashes millions of Colossal Titans, causing the death of 80% of humanity. It’s like giving an RPG with a nuclear bomb to someone who has mind-control powers.
Illumi Zoldyck – Hunter x Hunter
Illumi Zoldyck is a member of the Zoldyck family, a notorious group of assassins in Hunter x Hunter. He is known for his killing skills and expressionless face. Illumi’s Nen ability is to manipulate the minds of others with a needle that he injects into a living or dead subject. Once he inserts a specific needle into a person, the subject loses consciousness and follows his every command until death. One of many applications of this power is to create terror in the subject to ensure they do not break his commands.
Sosuke Aizen – Bleach
Sosuke Aizen is one of the most iconic villains in anime history. He is the former captain of the 5th Division of Gotei 13 in Bleach. Aizen’s ability to influence people’s minds is one of the scariest aspects of his character. He is a master manipulator who can affect the way people feel and think without them realizing it. He even manipulates strong characters by implanting memories and desires that play on their weaknesses.
Hitoshi Shinso – My Hero Academia
In My Hero Academia, Hitoshi Shinso has a Quirk called Brainwashing, which allows him to control anyone who answers his questions. Shinso’s power can force people to do his bidding, making him a formidable opponent. However, this power only works when the target answers his questions verbally, and it can be neutralized by a strong jolt. The fact that Shinso can control multiple people at once without them being aware of it makes his power all the more terrifying.
Lelouch Lamperouge – Code Geass
Lelouch Lamperouge is a character in Code Geass who possesses a power called Geass. With this power, he can issue one command to anyone, and they will be compelled to follow it. Lelouch uses his power to conquer world leaders and create a new world order. The only catch is that he can use Geass only once on each person, and if he commands someone to do something that conflicts with their desires, they will die.
In conclusion, characters with mind-control powers can be both fascinating and dangerous. They can control others to do their bidding and cause destruction and chaos. The above characters are examples of how powerful these abilities can be in the wrong hands.
